BigPoll, the annual Eurovision prediction tool of ESCToday returns for one more year. Today we present you your predictions for the first semi-final.

The first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is about to kick off live from Stockholm. 19 countries will compete to share 10 spots in the Grand final of the contest, scheduled to take place this Saturday May 14.

BigPoll’s ballot opened right after the second semi-final rehearsals finished and all of our readers were invited to participate by casting their predictions.

Totally 1395 users shared their predictions from all over the world, including Panama, China, Chile and Mauritius. BigPoll is using the same voting system as the senior Eurovision Song Contest itself, so the following results represent only the votes from countries participating on the first semi-final, as well as the automatic finalists which are eligible to vote; these are France, Spain and Sweden.
